CLEVELAND – The Ohio Lottery announced today that it will move forward with its plans to sell the multi-state jackpot game, Powerball.
 
The Ohio Lottery will bring draft game rules for Powerball before Ohio Lottery commissioners on Monday, Jan. 25.  If approved, the rules would receive a public hearing and go before the Joint Committee for Agency Rule Review (JCARR).  The rule would become final this spring, permitting Ohio to sell Powerball at that time.
 
 “The Lottery looks forward to offering Ohioans the opportunity to play another large jackpot game,” says Director Kathleen Burke.  “We anticipate retailers will benefit with additional foot traffic to their stores as well.  In addition, we believe this move will provide additional dollars for the Lottery Profits Education Fund.” 
 
More than $1.5 billion in Mega Millions tickets have been sold in Ohio since 2002, generating nearly $450 million in profits.  Retailers have earned more than $80 million in commissions and bonuses.
 
The Ohio Lottery joined Mega Millions in May 2002.
 
MUSL, the organization that offers Powerball to 33 member lotteries, and the Mega Millions states recently agreed to permit members to sell each other’s multi-state game.  On Dec. 31, the Powerball states voted to approve the cross-selling agreement as finalized.  Some states will begin cross-selling the two games as early as Jan. 31.

    23 PowerBall states and Washington D.C. will start selling MegaMillions tickets on Jan. 31, I wonder if the starting jackpot amount will also increase.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      I just figured the  starting amount would stay the same. but yes I guess they probably will make some changes

        Since MegaMillions was already competitive with PowerBall with only 12 states contributing to its jackpot, having 25 states contributing to its jackpot could not only means it could start out with a larger jackpot but its jackpot could also climb faster than PB's which could make it the more preferred game of the two.
